Voir Dire: This phrase is derived from the French words “to see” and “to say or tell.” At the beginning of a jury trial, the Court will have summoned a number of people as potential jurors. Most judges permit the attorneys to question potential jurors before the final group of jurors is selected. This process — known as voir dire — allows the attorneys to learn more about the jurors, but it also allows the potential jurors to learn about the case. If the discussion between the attorneys and potential jurors demonstrates that it would be difficult for a particular person to serve as a fair and unbiased juror for the trial, then that person can be excused from jury service.
